Constructing and Creating Crone Figures

I build crones, multi-media figures, representing the crone ~ a woman who has reached an age of wisdom and maturity.

The figures are built of salvaged materials, wood, metal, glass, clay. The faces are individually molded clay, all are painted. Each figure is different and transforms in form as part of the creation process; each is unique and individual.

This statement defines the crone and what goes into making one of my crone figures.


I usually create the crone figures in sets of two to four, the set pictured here are the Four Sisters Series.
